This deleted airport scene from Friends will rekindle your love for the show


What? A scene from Friends we haven't watched at least 100 times? That's nigh on impossible.

But over ten years after the show took its final bow, a deleted clip featuring Monica (Courteney Cox), Chandler (Matthew Perry), Joey (Matt LeBlanc) and Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) has emerged and it's a real treat.

In the video, the newly wedded Mr and Mrs Bing are going on their honeymoon, but the pair fail to make it past airport security when Chandler makes a joke about a bomb.

The scene was originally scheduled to air on 11 October 2001, but was pulled by producers after 9/11 due to the sensitive nature of the material.

“As part of the history of the show, we hope that the scenes can now be viewed in the spirit which they were originally intended,” reads an introduction to the clip. The video originally featured in the season eight DVD and was uploaded to YouTube in 2007.

But it seems thousands of fans haven't seen the clip before, having gone viral since it resurfaced yesterday and having been shared by the official Friends Facebook page last night.
